Great Ideas for Organizing Family Memories

It’s a great feeling when you walk into your home and are reminded of all the great family memories that are made. How to organize those family memories can sometimes be tricky. We’re sharing some our great ideas for organizing family memories.

Gallery Wall
What better way to organize your family’s memories than being able to walk into a room and see them everyday. We love creating a gallery wall that is a combination of our children’s (or our own) artwork and photos of cherished family time together. Need to schedule a photographer for up-to-date photos? We can help with that too.

We all know the dilemma of having piles of our children’s artwork just lying around the house. We love putting them into scrapbooks and organizing them by age or school year. It’s a great way for your family to look back fondly on past memories.

Keepsake Boxes
Not everything can, or should, be framed or put into a scrapbook. We reserve these items for keepsake boxes. Think of sentimental clothing or toys you hope to pass down to your grandchildren. Or a favorite set of books you’d love to revisit in the future. Anything you can’t bear to part with or hope your children can use in the future should go into these keepsake boxes.

Digital Photo Organization
We’ve all heard the horror stories of parents losing all of their digital photos. Don’t let this happen to you. Create a system for regularly backing up all of your digital photos.

Photo Books
Want to remember a fun family vacation? Or put together a highlight of your child’s school year? Create a photo book. There are so many options online and it’s an easy way to organize all of those family memories.

The Big Items
We literally mean size when we say big items. Sometimes it’s a skateboard or a set of snowshoes you don’t want to part with. We’ll help you figure out a storage system for all those big items that need saving.

We always have the best intentions of keeping our family memories organized. The issue is finding the time to organize them. If you’d like help keeping your family memories organized, reach out to our team today.
